Tachyon, Inc., long known as the maker of the world’s toughest helmet cameras, is now using their expertise to help hunters and gun hobbyist record and share video of their sport. Tachyon’s latest, to be available this summer, is a collection of accessories for their OPS cameras called GunCam™. GunCam™ is the first camera mounting system designed from the ground up with the needs of hunters and shooters in mind.
Tachyon GunCam™ – the entire collection bundle, or a la carte – consists of a variety of mounts that will secure the Tachyon OPS and OPS HD cameras to almost any handgun, rifle, or shotgun. Tachyon’s Picatinny Rail mount can easily be mounted to any gun that is equipped with a Picatinny rail. For guns without rails, such as rifles and shotguns, they offer attachable rails designed specifically for each type of gun. They even have a rail mount designed for scopes.
The Tachyon OPS cameras’ patented symmetrical mounting design allows them, in their mounts, to rotate four ways and also reverse, giving the user a total of eight directions of mounting for a wide variety of video angles. The Picatinny rail mount is adjustable and small enough to fit onto the rail of a pistol. These GunCam™ mounts also include a rail for bolt action rifles that attaches to the sling stud, while still allowing the sling to be attached. No modification of the rifle is required. The accessories also include two rails for 12 gauge semi-auto and pump-action shotguns, a mount for ball-caps and goggle-straps, a mount for tripods, and a mount for the curved surfaces of helmets. These cameras can be easily mounted to just about anything. It can go hunting one weekend and then go on an ATV ride the next. Solid, zinc-alloy construction ensures a safe, secure and durable mount.
The Tachyon OPS camera weighs in at only one ounce and measures just .95 inches in width and height and is 2.25 inches long. The OPS HD is only slightly larger. The OPS cameras with their built-in rechargeable batteries, record over two hours of continuous high quality video. The OPS cameras use a 4GB – 32GB Micro SD card, which is sold separately. They feature a high-dynamic light sensor with superior light gathering ability that makes them ideal for early morning hunts and indoor ranges.
“The FBI estimates there are more than 200 million privately owned guns in the United States, and that number is rising,” said John Chase, Sales Director for Tachyon, Inc. “We noticed that the industry was lacking a legitimate way to secure a camera to a handgun, let alone rifles and shotguns. We saw a need and filled it. Our entire GunCam™ bundle of mounting accessories has been custom designed specifically for hunters, shooters, law-enforcement, and military.”
The new OPS cameras, which fully integrate with the GunCam™ mounts, are a gun owners dream and couldn’t be easier to use. They have a simple, one-button operation and are plug-and-play with a PC or a Mac. There is no software to download or drivers to install. For those who would like to buy the complete bundle, it is $149.99 for the OPS and $199.99 for the OPS HD.
